“TV reporter had a stroke Live” Scam on Facebook–[Beware]

by Rohit Khurana on February 16, 2011


Serena Branson received a stroke live during her news reporting and the live video was captured and posted on YouTube. Now this is one of the most attracting video which can be viewed easily of YouTube, but those who never came to know about these videos are getting trapped in a scam observed on Facebook. Some of the exciting news and fake tricks are aimed in spreading the spam so that they can lure the user to click on that link of spam. In this post I will be telling you about a new spam which has been observed on Facebook and it is related to the video which has been mentioned in the first line.


“OMG!! The TV reporter had a stroke on live TV, just check it out.” Now this will lead many users to click on this link and then it will lead you to a thumbnail view of this video and when you will click that thumbnail, an application named as Reporter Stroke will ask you to grant the permissions. After granting the permission to this application your account will be infected and then this scam will use your account to write on the walls of your friend. If you really want to see this video then you can watch this on YouTube without any further formalities.


By now you must have got an idea about the pattern of the scams on Facebook as they include lots of ‘OMGsss’ and other extra-hyper words which are nothing but an extra-luring way to attract the users. So, try to stay away from the scams and where you find it on your wall or in any news feed then you can mark them as spam, so that Facebook also gets to know about it.
